I've been playing with my machine this morning. It's in wonderful condition. The only things it needs is the stand and needles. Those needles are so much longer than the ones available now so I don't know if they even exist.
The shuttle is in amazing condition. I cleaned out the lint and figured out how to thread it. I figure since I have the top thread going around the shuttle and between some tension disc? on the back it's working. It's just not working perfect. Adjusting the tension is driving me nuts this morning.
You can see the little bobbin that goes into the shuttle and the larger needle for the machine.
I'm not sure I have the top tension done right and it keeps coming loose.
I haven't tried winding a bobbin but watched a YouTube video of it. Wow. It was pretty cool to watch.
It just needs some fine adjustments that I don't know how to do.
Too bad I can't set it up with my Janome table. I moved my boards over so it could sit down into the space. If I could rig up a treadle contraption, it would work.
